This collaborative program between EASTCONN and Woodstock Academy provides services for high-school age students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities on the campus of Woodstock Academy. Students are supported by a team of educators in the development of social skills, independence, academic skills and employability skills in the context of an authentic high school experience, regardless of the student’s disability. Individual service plans are developed through the Planning and Placement Team process with the Local Education Agency (LEA).


Benefits: Students at the Woodstock Academy Cooperative Program receive targeted, individualized support in educational and daily-living areas with an emphasis on gaining independence and self-determination skills. Students have the opportunity to participate in regular classroom experiences, including unified physical education, unified music, unified food courses and modified regular education classes. Transition planning, community-based instruction and services are an ongoing part of each student's prescribed program. Students may also participate in after-school activities through a unified sports program that includes bowling, basketball, kickball and soccer with student mentors.
